We apply the homotopy analysis method (HAM) for solving the multipantograph equation. The analytical results have been obtained in terms of convergent series with easily computable components. Several examples are given to illustrate the efficiency and implementation of the homotopy analysis method. Comparisons are made to confirm the reliability of the homotopy analysis method.
